M.G. CAR CLUB.

THF, Abingdon to Abingdon Trial was run off on September 9th in ideal weather conditions. The first hill was Mill Lane, with its special restarting test, and this caused many pcople to lose marks straightaway. The best time of all was made by G. A. I. Forbes on a blown Magna. Nailsworth Ladder was not so fierce as was expected, but the rough surface shook people up considerably.

Immediately after lunch at the Bear Inn, Rodborough Common, came four hills in quick succession, Quarhouse, Blackness, Mutton and Iles Lane. Then came an acceleration and braking test, in which P. E. G. Lobb was the star performer. Finally competitors tackled the timed ascent of Battlescombe, where Forbes once again showed the speed of his K.3 Magna in making fastest time from K. D. Evans (J.2 Midget) and W. G. Everett (L type Magna).
